Neither of these 2 fools ever held a real job in their lives. They don't have a clue. There is only a handfull of people in Congress that understands the market. So when Cavuto has to interview someone who does he turn to? The other 2 moronswould not dream of facing someone asking questions

Obama's lead has extended to five points according to Rasmussen yet it seems to be all square at Gallup. This is rather confusing giving it was Rasmussen calling it close last week, and Gallup showing a large fissure between the two candidates. Can this only be used to show that polls are unreliable?

Polls are likely unreliable, but also, its the speed of events. These lads are up and down like yoyos. McCain was dead in the water last night, but the gambit of opposing the deal and outflanking Obama might rattle some more life out of him yet.

Are you looking forward to the one-sided debate? Will it be a bit like Bottom talking to the wall in Midsummer Nights Dream ?

Polling is most certainly an inexact science. America tends to go to town on the polls but it doesn't mean that they are accurate. There are polls saying that both are going to win, only one will be correct and it will probably be by fluke rather than method.

America also goes to town on the news. The whole news industry often just creates news 'cos they've nothing to report.

If you have digital (you have mentioned France 24 before so I presume you do) you will presumably pick it up on virtually any US station. I would imagine Sky News and/or BBC News 24 would certainly be covering it if there are limitations on what US Networks can.

McCain still won't say whether he is going to debate or not. A bit of a flirt if you ask me. Trying to be unpredictable - is that really what people want in a Presidential Candidate?

It's a public affairs station in the States which broadcasts only material related to Government and broadcasts alot of its material online. Google it and you will get the address.

I thought 1 am our time, but I think it may be 2 am now. McCain will make it though. Let's hope Obama show's some mettle.

Gallup has Obama three points ahead again. Is it make or break for McCain?

I feel in the mood for blood. I would like to see one of them really screw up, but think I am going to be gravely disappointed.

See how I feel when I get back. Bed or listen to probable tedium from two nondescripts.

I've lost my hardon for the whole contest. I could never manage to like Obama, no matter how hard I tried. I though McCain would be a decent candidate and that Palin was an interesting choice for VP. Biden always seemd a little tame, but that may be because I wanted Hillary, for President first (she's not gone away, you know) and then for VP. I was upset that that didn't happen.

But it seems McCain has put whatever decency he had aside, started bluffing (and doing so badly), Obama bounced on which his change nonsense and Palin has been a total car crash.

I think they would be better keeping Bush for another 4 years, and that's saying something!

Steady on give him another four years and we will see the reintroduction of serfdom.

For McCain to win he would need to act presidential on the financial crises and show leadership. He would have to deliver a straight and frankly depressing indication of what this economic mess actually means to the average American. We are all in this together times are hard. He needs to show the leadership that Bush is incapable of delivering and put forward his team that will deal with the economy and be able to argue a sane and sensible approach that will benifit all. If he does that he will annoy Bush, but so what he is just a liability. The no regulations and all is fine just wont cut it.

Of course that is unlikely to happen and we will have Obama in for 4 years. Unless I seriously misjudge him a lot of people are going to be gravely disappointed. Clinton, for all her sins, was by far the most capable. (EDIT Most capable candidate from the Democratic and Republican duality).

Reading about the latest debate between the two boyos, it looks as though it's going to be more a war of attrition. People expect a killer blow that just doesn't seem fothcoming.

A war of attrition probably plays into Obamas hands, he already endured one with Hillary.

So this weekend the republicans get Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live, whereas the Democrats get one of the most senior military strategist to swing in behind their candidate.

They're not even playing the same game anymore. Democrats are playing major league, Republicans are playing softball.
